On Monday, Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to create peace agreements in the Middle East.
Trump was nominated by Jaak Madison, an Estonian member of the EU Parliament, who went on to social media saying, “In the last 30 years, Donald Trump is the first president of the United States, who during his tenure, has not started a war. Additionally, he signed several peace agreements in the Middle East which have helped provide stability in the region and peace.”
His comments, and nomination, were in reference to the “Abraham Accords.” These “Accords” are statements made between Israel, the UAE, US, Bahrain and various Arab countries. These statements signaled the first-of-its-kind diplomatic relationships between Israel and other largely Muslim-countries.
Last year, Trump was also nominated for the coveted peace prize by Norwegian Parliament member Christian Tybring-Gjedde. Speaking to Fox News, Tybring-Gjedde said, “We encourage efforts to promote interfaith and intercultural dialogue to advance a culture of peace among the three Abrahamic religions and all humanity.”
According to the US State Department’s website, the “[Abraham Accords] encourage efforts to promote interfaith and intercultural dialogue to advance a culture of peace among the three Abrahamic religions and all humanity.”
